Restrictive covenants & breach of confidentiality

There are four key assets in any business; clients, employees, suppliers and confidential information. It is therefore unsurprising that ex-employees and their new employers are keen to take what they can from your company. If your business is faced with these issues, contact us immediately. Speed is essential.

In terms of our experience, we have acted for numerous companies in helping them remind and where necessary enforce the contractual restrictions applicable to their ex-employee or where applicable shareholders. We draft these restrictions regularly and therefore, we are in a great position to advise on what your company already has and whether you can enforce it. We apply pressure to ex-employees, or shareholders to gain compliance.

It is important to understand that, if you do not have express provisions in your contracts of employment or service agreements, your company will be very likely to be exposed here. Follow the link below to see how we can help you to set up appropriate protection:
